Morning came and we were late. Our trainer, Zul was already screaming at the top of his lungs for us to hurry. It seems bloggers can never wake up on time. :-D We were supposed to gather outside the longhouse at 7am but only by 7.40am everyone was there. We were divided into five groups and my group consists of Jard, Saleh, Helga and Zaid. We had to warm up first before we go for our next activity – jungle trekking.

“Look! You can see First World Hotel from here!”

Oh yeah, did I ever tell you guys that I am not a very physical person? I like to stay away from physical activities, especially something that requires me to climb uphill. :lol:

Jungle trekking is not my particular favorite type of activity. I know in jungle trekking you either go up or you go down to see the various types of flora and fauna around. I don’t usually mind the going down part, but the going up, well that’s another story. If I recall it right, the last time I went jungle trekking was at FRIM when I was in Form 2 following the school’s Maths & Science Club. So yeah, that’s just me.

Walking into the jungle, you can here sounds of birds chirping and also sounds of monkeys. I think the sounds of birds chirping are so calming. It made me forget that I already have a horrible sore throat.

“Spot the monkey in one of the pictures”

However, praise the Lord we only went jungle trekking for less than 2 km. We were descending down into the jungle and since I am lazy to climb back up later, I slow down at the back and use it as a reason to take photos of my surroundings. :-P *cheat* Luckily though, Zul decided not to bring us farther in because there’s another activity waiting for us later called “Tears of The Sun”.

check your leeches peeps! :P

While we were walking out, somebody said something about leeches and how it can get into the shoes without you realizing it. Siti said she saw one that was trying to get into her socks but she managed to quickly flick it away. Feeq was calling to everyone asking where he can get leeches for himself. By the time we got out of the trekking course, Jard showed us the leech hanging near her calf. I was busy taking photos and trying out the setting of my camera when suddenly I thought why don’t I just check, in case there’s a leech in my shoes too.

So, I opened my right shoe, pulled down my socks and voila, one happy leech was getting fat sucking my blood. I was transfixed. I never had a real leech on me before – I sound like a kiasu city-girl, don’t I? :-P Not long after I took off my socks, the fat leech fell to the ground and we headed to Pasar Ikan Bakar to have our breakfast. I got a  band-aid for my leech bite since there was some blood still trickling down my feet. And yeah, it itches.

Anyways, better have some food to prepare for the “Tears of the Sun” activity. Come cheer for me in my next post! :-)
